The declaration of war in 1914 was to change Britain and British society irrevocably as the conflict came to dominate every aspect of civilian life. Drawing on popular weeklies of the period - The Tatler, The Sketch and The Queen - this book follows the transformations in British life as these magazines responded to the new preoccupations of their middle- and upper-class readers - recruiting, nursing, fundraising, war work - as well as changes in the usual reporting of the social round.
